    like in my last DOTM Thread (that i made last year), i began having problems in deciding what toy i should get next for DOTM, this time i am saving up for a deluxe toy, just like when i made the last thread i still not have enough money for one, but its better to know what figure is more recommended to pick before i have the money ready.

    so what DOTM wave 2 and/or 3 deluxe you recommend me the most to pick when i have the money ready (150) (i already have sideswipe, mudflap and laserbeak thus they arent in the list)

    Update 1; Got Topspin, so that means you have to vote for Barricade, Jolt, Nitro Bee and Thundercracker only now!, so who of those 4 should i get next now?
    Update 2: Got Barricade, so that means you have to vote for Jolt, Nitro Bee and Thundercracker only now!, so who of those 3 should i get next now?

    I only have barricade and topspin from that lot and they are both pretty good.
    I like the DOTM baricade but in terms of size and stability, TFTM is better IMO.

    I think many people seem to like nitro bumble though.

    Topspin. He's one of my favorites of the entire line.

    Here's my extended thoughts:

    Jolt- Buy at your own risk. This figure is so close to being bad. It's a fiddly mess, while the ROTF one is fun and intuitive.

    Barricade- This one is great. Get it at some point, but not yet. It's by no means the best of that list. But whenever you get it, do yourself a favor and throw his mechtech in the garbage. It looks stupid and he can't hold it worth a damn.

    Topspin- PICK THIS ONE!!! Seriously, this thing is awesome. Buy immediately.

    Thundercracker- This is the one to get after Topspin. Great redeco. Make sure to pick it up at some point.

    Nitro Bumblebee- This one is just okay. But make sure to take the spring out of his mechtech. The double barreled cannon is the only good mode it has. Plus, he does have molded in wrist cannons if you don't like it.

    1. Topspin- great weapons, his bot mode has really grown on me. Plus I am white trash, so Nascar is right up my alley.
    2. Barricade- I like him more than the original, finally took a flyer on him for $5 and was really more impreseed than I expected to be.
    3. Nitro BB- Havent transformed him out of car mode, but I love the look of the rockets.
    The other two I havent purchased yet, T-Cracker is of no interest to me, and I may eventually get Jolt if he is on deep clearance, but the color/lack of paint kills it for me. If I knew how to paint, I would color him up in ROTF colors.

    I like Jolt the most, he's fidly but he's got a lot going on and is way more screen accurate than the first toy (besides color).

    Think outside the wave, for Crankcase. :) 


    He's probably still around, and even if with broken digits he's awesome as fuck. Doooo it.

    Yea I have nitro bee and topspin (topspin being my fav out of the two) if you want a bee I would get the normal one.

    Out of the ones I havnt got I would say barricade as from what I have heard jolt is pretty bad. I would consider thundercracker if you cant get topspin barricade or nitro bee as it is just a re-coloured version of starscream

    He didn't put Crankcase because he already has him, bro.

    Thundercracker.

    He looks great in both modes, his weapons are neat, and unlike 90% of the DotM line, he's not a car or truck. I love the shade of blue they used on the figure, it's dark with just a bit of metallic. Easily my favorite Deluxe from DotM.

    Plus, he's much harder to find than, say, Topspin at this point (since wave 3 didn't shelfwarm nearly as much as waves 1 and 2), and is only going to get harder to find.

    voted for Topspin (duh!) but keep in mind that Jolt is not bad as people say it is. i think he's a much more handsome robot than his Rotf counterpart. He's also quite bulkier than the rest of Dotm deluxe car bots. his dull colours are the main problem.

    Topspin is one of my favorite figures in the line. I got an Armor one at a discount partially just to have more of those awesome weapons the figure comes with.

    Topspin is pretty cool. I'd grab him before the others.

    Topspin's weapons are good with other figures (TFP Arcee, Soundwave), so I would go for that one for that reason alone.

    And his mechtech cannon is a good replacement weapon for Barricade. It even matches 'Cade's colors!

    Topspin is easily the best out of the lot there.
